Published to commemorate the anniversaries of the beginning of Bernward's influential tenure (993-1022) as bishop of the northern German diocese of Hildesheim and his canonization in 1193, this massive two-volume catalogue documents an ambitious exhibition of some 400 works of the Ottonian era drawn from collections throughout Europe, including illuminated manuscripts, bookbindings, ivory carvings, reliquaries, textiles, coins and many examples of fine metalwork. Extensive individual analyses of the featured objects are augmented by more than 40 wide-ranging essays that include discussions of Ottonian religious and political institutions, the history of early medieval Saxony, Bernward's role in the establishment of Hildesheim as a center of manuscript production and metalworking, the collecting of Byzantine art objects by Ottonian rulers, and images of Saint Bernward in German art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century.
